In the rabbitry this morning I found, right on time, six brand new baby rabbits wiggling the fur their mom had piled up on top of them to keep them warm.
I am always excited when we have baby rabbits, I am doubly excited and curious about this litter. This is our first attempt at Line Breeding.
Basically, you breed Rabbit #1, in our case, Milo here,
to rabbit #2 Tiffany,
From their litter, group 3,second generation, you select the best offspring to breed back to the dam and/or sire, that is rabbit #3. In our case we picked Magellan to breed back to Tiffany.
So now we have group #5, third generation.

I am really looking forward to watching these little guys grow.
